I'm someone who really enjoys watches and tends to be anal about details and quality. Owning several luxury watches, this one is obviously far from it, but for it's value and what it contains, the ratio is pretty well balanced. I typically don't do reviews on cheap items, but I was pleasantly surprised at what I got for $10.

I bought this watch for when I'm working in rough situations. I've scratched my fair share of luxury watches and it can get pretty irritating. So I thought I try and go for something that looks decent and that I wouldn't mind getting it damaged.

Body:
From what I can tell, the body seems to be made out of steel (hopefully stainless steel at the least). It's covered in a clear protective coat that feels like a thin layer of high quality rubber. This could be a part of the paint as well, which is what gives the watch it's "vintage" patina look. This is what also gives the watch its shine affect as noted in the picture. The body is very lightweight, which makes it feel cheap. The hinge's construction, at least on the one I received, is pretty sturdy. I performed several stress tests and it held up nicely. The mold in which the door and hand crown came from where cut neatly from the mold. Meaning that typically when two halves of the same mold come together to create the "full" item, there sometimes is run off that gets in between the two molds, essentially making an additional flat part that is connected to the desired part. This can give the item a really cheap look and feel. If you notice the intricate holes on the half-hunter door, the holes were neatly cut on the one I received.

Face:
The face is nothing special. Looking at it, the face is printed on white paper and glued in place. The hands are plastic. Confirming that it's a genuine quartz movement will require actually looking at the internal time keeping mechanism, but seeing that it's a $10 watch, I didn't bother. However, I will note that the watch is really accurate. I sync the watch to the time on my iPhone and used the watch for a day. Basically the watch experienced as what I would call a normal day for a user. Later that night I checked to see how far it was off, it wasn't. It still held the correct time. The window is plastic, as expected, but the real turn off was that it was not held in a stationary position. I could easily spin the plastic in its holder, sort of like a child's toy watch.

Chain:
The chain is a standard length chain. It's made out of the same material as the body, except it does not have the rubber finish to give it its shine effect. The chain and clock look oddly paired because of this, but again for $10, I can't complain. Keep in mind, the chain's form and connection is different from typical pocket watches. Usually pocket watches will have a single chain that connects to the watch crown handle and a clip. This is just a chain that connects to the watch and loops, similar to that of wearing a necklace. It has a hook at the opposite end so that the loop can be opened.

Overall, not bad for a cheap watch.

Five dollars well spent.
Works great. Doesn't lag. Long enough chain to be put about anywhere. Seems durable for a long while- THAT IS if you are responsible enough to care for it. Come on, it's not that hard to make sure you don't sit on it. And-

Free battery dude. Why not get it?

Really nice looking and it keeps time well, unless, by putting it in your pocket, you disturb the little time-setting ring on its top - stopping time (so to speak). For the price, it can't be beat.

I was very pleased when this watch arrived. It was well packaged and arrived within a decent time. I like the vintage antique bronze, the fact that the numbers are easily read (and not Roman numerals). The front covering over the face allows you to see the numbers, so you do not have to open the case in order to tell the time. Also, the price was very reasonable. I bought this as a stocking gift for my husband. When he saw it, he liked it. He said that he will use it for every day.
We didn't dislike the fact that the casing is not as fancy as some. This is why my husband will use it as an everyday watch. If you want something very fancy and ornate, this would not be the watch. However, it is lovely, practical and does look antiquey. It looks to be well made..and doesn't look junky.

i gave it 3 stars because the links on the chain came broken and the glass isn't glued or rather its not securely fit on the watch but in all the only con of it was those two reason everything was great.

The quality of the watch was ok. However this is not a pocket watch as listed, It is a necklace watch. Bought this to use for my wedding party and was dipleased to find it was not a pocket watch but a necklace watch.
